Thomasville - "It's fun real fun!" That's how 10-year-old Nyteefa Robinson feels about camp Easy Air. She says kids with asthma can do just as much "fun stuff" as other kids, and she wants everyone to know it.

Robinson says, "I want to spread out to America that people with asthma can do stuff that they think they can."

But this camp is about more than just swimming, sliding and splashing. It's about educating kids, too. "Everyday they learn a lesson about their asthma," says counselor and Respiratory Therapist student Amanda Lovering.

Kayla McKinney is learning a lot. "You don't panic," she says. "That's the number one thing. You don't panic. When you feel that you're about to have an asthma attack you go sit down, calm down, and take your medicines."

As long as she keeps her asthma in check, Kayla believes anything is possible. "I can do anything with asthma as long as I have my medicines, as long as I control it, and as long as the Lord is with me," says Kayla. "I can do anything." Just like she's doing today.

Camp Easy Air is only held once a year in Thomas County, but there are other camps planned in Southwest Georgia this month. To find out more, call Juana Stewart at 229-228-8053.
